[applause] >> the once disgraced president rose to the rescue. obamamania has faded, along with hope and change, and the man who describes himself as a little country boy is a hero for now, much more popular than the president appeared this was classic clinton -- only sheer charisma can hold a crowd enraptured with a speech
to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are exceptional in the sense that we can solve problems by ourselves, that we can fix the things the way we did 100 years ago. thinking about immigration, there is nothing we can do. we cannot do that one nation at a time. even if we suddenly had all of the alternative energy and if we got off the petroleum teet and started using geothermal energy, 80% to 85% of the emissions come from other countries. we do these things

wouldn't have said it that way. i think the broader point though is with lousy obama economy, entrepreneurship is at the lowest level in years. we need more tax breaks created. >> more the arican people to throw out barack obama they have to believe that mitt romney understands their cares and concerns and can do something about it. it is hard for them when all they see is a sound bite saying he doesn't care. his words not mine >> well, it shouldn't have been sate that way. but i didn't read the full context that way, pierce. i have read that he wants the economy to get better to create more taxpayers to fund governments so that we can do something about the $16 trillion in debt. he wouldn't say it that way again. the broader point about having a debt reducer and job creator is a good point. >> let me tell you the results of three polls. one is michigan mit romney's home state. barack obama 52%, mitt romney 44%. and then virginia, this is your home state. barack obama 5 50%, mitt romney 43%. and then wisconsin. a clear pattern of a lead and momentum in the favor of the presid
but first let's hear what president obama had to say about it. >> we saw three straight days of an agenda out of the last century. it was a rerun. he might as well watched it on black and white tv. with some rabbit ears on there. should have been on "nick at night." >> dana: i was watching nick at night, a great network. last week, jay carney, the white house spokesman said the president didn't have time to watch the republican convention. it feels to me they had written this speech for him in ohio before they even saw it, the rnc. >> greg: get to the truth of the matter, how racist that commentary was. black and white this that is a dog whistle. mef and chris matthews knows what that means. bring up rerun from what is happening? the poor guy is not alive to defend himself. here is the deal. i predicted this last week that the democrats would say that romney and the republicans are out of step, old-fashioned. as though fidelity and prudence and discipline are things that don't exist or matter anymore. if the republican idea are old, imagine how old the liberal ideas are? they're cobwebs w
remarks from democrats and even some republicans feel was a major mistake. accusing president obama of making americans dependent on government. also, giving a chance to hit back. president obama holds his fire. we're digging into what his strategy might be. and just off the assembly line our brand new poll from one of the states that potentially could decide the presidential election. john king is on the ground in michigan with the latest numbers. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the brand new counteroffensive mitt romney's launching only 48 days before the presidential election. instead of trying to explain away his secretly videotaped complaint that the 47% of u.s. voters who support president obama are dependent on government, romney's trying to turn the controversy to his political advantage. our national political correspondent jim acosta is covering romney's latest stop in atlanta. >> reporter: wolf, mitt romney is now owning his message that too many americans are dependent on the government. he's trying to parlay a gift he received from th
much. happening now, a speech to the world. president obama at the united nations goes in depth on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all
-- when obama won the effort and energy that african-americans put into his victory meant that many of the associations which -- this happen before. it changes things. the one thing to remember, we are the only race, only race that the republican party has not pursued. they -- zero. so they get zero response. there's nothing in any of the associations that can be said to lead african-americans, large associations, the fed responded to cited or articulate. the problem is and question was about coalition building. i think that is an important issue. it would be easy to build coalitions if the republican ticket wins because it would be a lot of people who say we don't have to have coalitions that are just response. the problem is that without some of these organizations that were not as responsive as they should've been after obama got into the white house, we cannot maintain without a link left. there are a variety of explanations for the. probably my simplest example, shirley sherard. remember, we immediately conceded to the right wing media spin can you explain who she is. >> the af

that left the u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and three staffers dead. on wednesday, president obama vowed to bring to justice those responsible for the killings, which he said would not repeat ties between u.s. and libya. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. the world must stand at a to unequivocally reject these brutal acts. already, many libyans have joined us in doing so. this attack will not break the bonds between u.s. and libya. >> the obama administration has dispatched an elite group of marines to the libyan capital of tripoli and six u.s. warships toward the libyan coast in a bid to ramp up security of u.s. personnel. we'll have more on the protests throughout the middle east after the headlines. the response to the deadly attack in libya has entered the presidential campaign after republican nominee mitt romney is the tragedy to attack president obama. hours before the protests erupted in cairo and benghazi, the u.s. embassy in cairo issued a statement attem

with a nuclear weapon is unacceptable, and by the way, i'm quite sure president obama when he says that, he means it and intends to stand by it. i think america is also giving a very strong message to iran, but everybody wants to resolve this without a conflict because that is sensible and the best way of doing it, because the consequences of any conflict would be very serious, profoundly unpredictable. >> let's see what bjamin netanyahu today. he had this extraordinary chart he produced which was very effective. take a look. >> so how much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? and how close is iran to getting it. let me show you. brought a diagram for you. here's the diagram. >> there was the diagram. he went on to show where the red line was. he basically said look, the process and speed of the enriching of uranium going on in iran, they could have a nuclear bomb ready to use by next summer. do you believe that? do you have any evidence for that? have you seen anything -- >> look, what the evidence is is something i wouldn't really comment on and by the way, there will be a lot of informatio

worth noting. one is missile defense. when the obama administration came into office, they did not cut funding for missile defense. they kept it at about the same level, about $10 billion a year. but they shifted resources to focus much more on other things. these are systems like patriots, it is good for helping protect our forces overseas were -- now, national missile defense systems are really concerned with protecting the united states in particular. the obama administration changed our plans for european missile defense to leverage the existing missile defense system and put that system sure first in romania and poland later on. they also curtailed the ground-based midcourse. they stopped it at 30. i think the wrong administration would actually probably go back and change the balance again, much more in favor of national missile defense systems and we have actually seen in congress, republicans have been pushing the idea of deploying some of these ground-based and interceptors on the united states disclosed. another area of specific differences in shipbuilding. it is an imperfect
